It was a very boggy walk today bu still a lovely place to be. It must be beautiful when the wildflowers are in bloom

Close to home (and Anaconda!), this is an area we had not previously visited. Originally described as 'wheelchair friendly', it was obviously not, unless you had sand tyres: (I have changed it to 'Easy'). There are very few highlights, except for the occasional goanna, but a good trail for a bit of exercise. There was also a sign for the Robur Fire Trail at the start, but not investigated, but presume that it follows the edge of the NP to the river?

Great walk for wildlife kids loved it although not so much the knee deep water crossing.

We really enjoyed the open plain. It was covered with what looked like something similar to small grass trees all with spikes. It was a really hot day, but the breeze over the flat plains made it cooler there than among the trees.

Did the whole trail with the connections of Aemula , Littorails too. Easy fire trail but a little muddy / wet after rain we had.
